Outdoor Kitchen: Lime Tree Alfresco

An outdoor living space is a substantial investment. However, the end result can not only increase the value of your property, but improve your lifestyle by facilitating more time outdoors. Lime Tree Alfresco is a company that specialises in outdoor kitchens with a vision to deliver both functional and aesthetically appealing outdoor cooking environments.

With over 25 years experience in the building industry, founder Adam Douglas was working with a bench top manufacturer in 2010 when he realised there was a need for Outdoor Kitchen specialists. At the time the options were relatively restricted and limited to stainless steel and masonry structures. Builders and cabinet makers were doing their best but had limited time and resources to provide the best advice.LimeTreeAlfresco_1

We wanted to find quality outdoor materials that gave customers a choice of design, finish and colour, without compromising on quality. Materials sourced also needed to carry outdoor warranties from manufacturers.


Lime Tree Alfresco were commissioned to complete an Outdoor Kitchen for clients Jodi and Troy, as they had trouble finding a company with the knowledge of which materials could be used in their coastal location.


The brief was to build a combination of cabinetry and benchtops that would compliment the couples pre-purchased appliances. The Outdoor Kitchen was designed to separate the relaxed cooking/entertaining space from the more formal lounge space of the outdoor area. The clients also wanted to include a breakfast bar benchtop with seating on both sides to take advantage of their water views.


The cabinetry used within this kitchen is PVC Weatherboard and was constructed using marine grade fixings. The doors and drawers are an aluminium framed composite panel in metallic charcoal. The benchtops are a 40mm Corian colour called Concrete. All of the appliances are from Beefeater: BBQ, Rangehood and a two door fridge.


The budget for this project was around $20,000 to complete which included all appliances, painted glass splash back, cabinetry, benchtops and installation. A 10 year warranty was provided by Lime Tree Alfresco on all external surfaces, providing the client with enormous peace of mind.
